Troy Fumagalli: Back with San Fran
The 49ers signed Fumagalli to their practice squad Wednesday.
A 2018 fifth-round pick by Denver, Fumagalli has struggled to stay on active rosters. The Wisconsin product appeared in 19 games from 2019 to 2020, totaling 14 catches for 118 yards and two scores, but he hasn't played in a regular-season game since. The 49ers have one of the better tight end corps in the NFL, so Fumagalli likely won't get many chances in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Troy Fumagalli: Does not make cut
Fumagalli was released by the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Fumagalli was buried on the 49ers' tight end depth chart, so this move is not too surprising. He was competing to provide depth at the position, as well as contribute on special teams. The 28-year-old is now set to look for a new opportunity, unless San Francisco decides to offer him a role on its practice squad.... See More ... See Less

Troy Fumagalli: Returns on practice squad
Fumagalli signed a practice-squad contract with the 49ers on Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Fumagalli failed to secure a spot on San Francisco's final 53-man roster after joining the team on a one-year deal in May. The 27-year-old missed the entirety of the 2021 season while on New England's IR with an undisclosed injury, and he recorded 14 career receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns over 19 regular-season games with Denver from 2019 to 2020. Fumagalli should now have a chance to earn a reserve role with a tight-end-needy team while working on the 49ers' practice squad.... See More ... See Less

The 49ers signed Fumagalli (undisclosed) to a one-year contract Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Fumagalli appeared in six games for Denver in 2020, totaling eight receptions for 80 yards and one touchdown, but he didn't play at all in 2021 due to an undisclosed injury. However, the 27-year-old appears to be healthy after participating in the 49ers' rookie minicamp last weekend. To make room for Fumagalli, San Francisco released Garrett Walston.... See More ...

Patriots' Troy Fumagalli: Gets chance in New England
The Patriots signed Fumagalli to a contract Thursday, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.
Fumagalli has suited up for 19 games with the Broncos in his NFL career, with 14 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns in that span. He joined Denver as a fifth-round pick during the 2018 NFL Draft, and also spent some time on Houston's practice squad during the 2020 season. Now, the former Wisconsin standout will get a chance to compete with the likes of Devin Asiasi, Dalton Keene and Matt LaCosse for a depth spot with the Patriots.... See More ... See Less
Troy Fumagalli: Becomes free agent
Fumagalli became an unrestricted free agent Wednesday after the Broncos didn't tender him a contract, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Fumagalli hauled in six passes for 38 yards and a touchdown during his first active NFL campaign with the Broncos in 2019. He then re-signed with Denver last November, after spending time on Houston's practice squad to begin last season. The 26-year-old will now have an opportunity to seek a contract on the open market, though Denver may keep Fumagalli on its short list of potential backup options, should the team's depth at tight end take a hit at any point in 2021....

Broncos' Troy Fumagalli: Fills in well in 2020
Fumagalli caught eight of 15 passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in eight games during the 2020 season.
Fumagalli -- who entered the league as a fifth-round pick by Denver in 2018 -- returned to his original team following a stint with the Texans practice quad, after a rash of injuries hit the Broncos' tight-end room. He showed some flashes, including a four-catch outing against Carolina. Injuries derailed Fumagalli's first go-around in Denver, but -- depending on what the team does in the offseason -- he might be worth bringing back as a TE3 behind Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam in 2021....

Broncos' Troy Fumagalli: Snags touchdown
Fumagalli caught two of three targets for 15 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 32-31 loss to Las Vegas.
Fumagalli was responsible for Denver's first touchdown late in the first quarter, slipping out into the back of the end zone off of play action for a one-yard score, his first of the season. He struggled with injuries during his first go-round in Denver but provided some nice performances with the Broncos thin at tight end down the stretch. He offers an interesting reserve option for 2021 behind Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Troy Fumagalli: Not targeted in loss
Fumagalli wasn't targeted in Saturday's 48-19 loss to the Bills.
Fumagalli produced a 4-53-0 line in last week's win over the Panthers, but he fell out of favor this week with Noah Fant handling a full workload. Still, it's intriguing that he out-snapped Nick Vannett by a 19-16 margin, as he's putting together a case to stay with the team for the 2021 season.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Troy Fumagalli: Has career day in Carolina
Fumagalli caught four of five targets for 53 yards during Sunday's 32-27 win over Carolina.
He did the bulk of his damage late in the third quarter when, facing second and long, Drew Lock dropped a tight-end screen to Fumagalli, who cut upfield for a 29-yard gain and near-touchdown. The Wisconsin product wasn't even on the roster a few weeks ago, but he was able to exceed his previous career total in receiving yards Sunday with Noah Fant (illness) exiting early and the overall poor injury luck of the Broncos' tight-end room. Fant reportedly is likely to go Saturday against a tough Buffalo defense, so it would be a surprise if Fumagalli enjoys another five-target afternoon.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Troy Fumagalli: Signs with active roster
Fumagalli was promoted from the practice squad Saturday as he has maxed out his two game-day elevation, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Fumagalli has played in four consecutive games with the Broncos now and is officially part of the 53-man roster. The tight end has caught two of his six targets for 12 yards throughout his last four games. The 25-year-old will likely continue playing a minimal role as long as Noah Fant and Nick Vannett remain healthy.... See More ... See Less
